Many sports run City Vs Country events. This discipline simply followed that tradition. It is based on shooters gathering at one common range and grouping into teams based on their SSAA membership.
This is as much an event for individuals as it is a team event.
Teams however are the main theme of this competition. The top shooters of each team have their scores combined and compared to the rival team. The highest scoring team wins.
This event was conceived in 2000 between Noel Cross and David Waters. Following on from Silverdale Vs Mudgee events, they spoke about idea’s to increase SSAA participation in this great discipline and attract shooters from all over NSW to represent their region while giving members more exposure to state type championships. There were many reasons why this should go ahead, but at the end of the day, it was all about fun and meeting new or old acquaintances.
The CvC event is completely different in both concept and competition.
Unlike some team events, the CvC teams are not pre-made, but simply based on your membership region. Simply showing up puts you in a team, but you don’t have to worry about letting the team down. The aggregate scores used to decide the winners only come from the top shooters of each team.
This caters for everybody such as those that participate for fun, or for serious competition.
